Pretty standard. Everyone gives you a cut, 25% is about the sweet spot.

We resell for CA for an antivirus and antispyware package, Fortinet, Cisco, IC Intracom (both their Intellinet and Manhattan lines,) Mozy, Vault Logix, and McAfee TOPS for big business installations (it is NOTHING like the retail product, it is small, fast, and gives the user no messages/windows/questions, and it is centrally managed through a website for you to work on all your clients machines from one interface.)

We are partnered up with about 10 others, but those are usually not your typcal "we sell your parts/software" type deals.

I became a reseller for NOD32 a few months ago and I'm getting 30% discount. I managed to sell 20 licenses to a business the other day, which is quite a tasty profit I do think it's a fantastic AV though.

I don't really sell any other software, so that's about it. It's a shame Kaspersky don't have a reseller program.

This is very interesting seeing who sells/resells what. What other things do you resell or promote?

I know we all sell parts, but what about new H/W?


Also, I would assume that if you resell it, you at least use it? Is this true?
Personally I don't know if I would sell something that I was unsure about using myself. Your thoughts?

How is it dealing with AVG? Do they have a good/reachable US presence? I didnt really do much looking since we already had our CA and McAfee TOPS partnerships in place. But I would like know how hard it is to deal with them (since they are over in europe.)

At any given time we have about 20 techs in the field working. Sometimes in a real good day it can be more than that. With the volume we do with partners we need really good access to our account manager and support for our techs in the field.
